This was supposed to be a game between a pair of undefeated teams before the Lobos muffed it all up by losing just before Christmas to the San Diego Toreros. This is a good New Mexico team that has been challenged this year by teams like the Connecticut Huskies, who probably legitimately have one of the best 30 or 40 teams in America. Cincinnati is a weak 12-0 team in our eyes. The club’s 79.8 points per game will certainly settle into the high-60s or low-70s come Big East play, and the 57.7 points per game allowed in thanks to a very weak schedule to boot. All that’s going to have to happen in this one is for G Sean Kilpatrick to have a bad shooting day from the floor, and all of a sudden, the Bearcats are going to be in some trouble. We almost feel like we owe San Diego a belated Christmas gift, because this probably would have been a four-point spread otherwise. We want the points on our side with a battle tested bunch of Lobos, even on the road in the Queen City.
